Constructing a cross country district schedule 2015-12-13
From David:
Retired math teacher trying to help son-in-law schedule a cross country district schedule. The would like to have four tri-meets each week for five weeks and one week of dual meets. The score the tri-meets as three duals, i.e. 1v2, 2v3, 1v3 constitutes one tri-meet. After many hours, not sure its possible, but I have forgotten a great deal! Thanks
